Graduate Student Orientation Scheduled for August 16 and 17

Welcome to Kent State University!

Graduate Student Orientation (GSO) is held prior to the start of fall and spring semesters for all new graduate students. 

GSO provides an opportunity to learn about university resources and network with other new graduate students, along with representatives of KSU's faculty, staff, and administration. GSO supplements department and program-level orientations to help you understand our university community as a whole. GSO will feature a series of presentations from different resource areas across campus, campus tours, and breakout sessions facilitated by the GSO teaching fellows related to topics on teaching, research, and graduate student life. 

Registration will open for Fall 2018 GSO on May 1. Fall GSO will be held on Thursday, August 16 (for all new graduate students) and Friday, August 17 (for all new teaching assistants) in the Kent Student Center. All new graduate students are encouraged to attend day one and all new teaching assistants are required to attend both days.

If you have specific questions regarding GSO, please contact Kyle Reynolds at or 330-672-1466.
